This past Friday, news broke that Marie Osmond’s 18-year-old son Michael committed suicide by jumping to his death. In a note, Michael explained how severe depression had taken over his life and that he felt he could never conquer it. Suffice to say, Marie is heartbroken.
“When she heard about the tragedy, she was a mess. She was in disbelief. They’re doing the best they can,” the friend says. “They’re all together. She’s taking care of her family. They’re all trying to explain that certain [bad] things happen while they grieve at the same time. They’re trying to understand and make sense of it.”
Can we hunt down depression and kill it? It seems to be causing a lot of problems lately.
